Notes

A great mix of beginner and expert ski trails. With the inclusion of the Jerry Jolly Trails there is about 25 km groomed for skating and classic. There is also an additional 15 km of classic only trails. With views of Lake Superior and the Apostle Islands, this is a very scenic area to ski. There is a nice lodge which sells snacks and food as well as a ski patrol and small downhill area.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
Tuesday morning the classic tracks were reset on Seagull classic uphill connector, Oppedahl’s, Skid Road, Jolly, and the lolly pop section of Sugar Bush. The skate lanes were groomed on Anchor, Seagull, Northern Lights, Abbey Road, Switch Back, Anchor Power line Connector, Seagull skate uphill connector, Power Line, and Roller Coaster. The skate lane on Jolly was groomed in the afternoon. The skating is fast with a thin soft surface, the classic track experience is mixed, the sections protected from the sun and away from the evergreens fared the best with some great tracks, others sections fall short of our standards. Some new snow will help. All the trails ski very fast right now, go fast but be careful. The picture is from Switch Back you can see the track is well shaped but very firm. I would not describe it as glazed but it is frozen firm.

Grooming

Monday the following grooming was done: set new classic tracks on Raven, Deer Path, Black Bear, Sugar Bush, Abbey Road, Northern Lights, Seagull, Switch Back, Power Line, and Roller Coaster. The tracks came out quite well considering the warm weekend, I would say 70% came out perfectly with the rest awaiting the next grooming. The skate lanes will be combed again after the temps chill down, but looked pretty good today. The photo is from Abbey Road.

Grooming 
[ Trails Open: Most, Good skis ]
Another gorgeous day of spring skiing in February, might as well embrace and enjoy it. This morning the following was done: combed the skate lanes on Beginners Loop, Abbey Road, Anchor, Switch Back, Seagull, Northern Lights, Power line, Anchor/Powerline connector, and Roller Coaster. I think the skating will be great this morning. The Classic tracks still look well defined but must be glazed from the warmth and bright sun yesterday. Unfortunately there is not much we can do to improve the classic tracks until the temperature profile becomes more favorable.

Afternoon
Grooming 
[ Trails Open: All, Good skis ]
Tuesday all the Skate/Classic trails were groomed and tracked. There was 2-3 inches of new snow that groomed very well and with the cooler temps it should make for several days of great skiing for those in need of last minute Birkie training.

The skate trails were touched up this morning. They are in fantastic condition. The classic tracks need to be touched up but we are waiting for the perfect temperatures.

This morning the skate lanes were refreshed. The classic tracks were left alone because the temperature profile would have left them too soft for skiing today. Have a good day.
